I have to say that I am both disappointed and not surprised at Tumblr’s reaction and constant bitching about Chris Kyle, his book, and the movie adaptation.
It’s a crock of shit having to constantly see Chris’ name slandered by a bunch of ignorant, extremist liberal, children who don’t understand the sacrifices and decisions we service members down range have to make. Until you’ve deployed, and until you’ve faced those split-second life or death decisions, you do not have any sort of right to drag Chris Kyle’s name through the mud. Chris Kyle saved so many service members, both in Iraq and back home here in the states.
Had Chris Kyle acted outside of his ROE, not only would you have learned his name much longer ago (because it would be on every news outlet), but he would also be still alive and sitting on his ass in Fort Leavenworth Military Prison. But Chris was a trained professional with phenomenal trigger discipline, who knew the difference between a hostile target and an innocent civilian.
Yes, even that little boy and his mother were hostile targets. Why? The minute you pick up any sort of weapon and point it at US forces, you immediately become a hostile. If you start firing a weapon (or in this case tossing a grenade) at a patrolling platoon in a street, you WILL be killed. You are a threat.
Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS, Taliban, Al Nusra, and every other terrorist organization are the free world’s enemies. Anyone who sides with them, or helps them, is an enemy.
If you hate America so much, take your happy asses and get out. I’m pissed that I signed away my life to people who are so disgustingly un-patriotic and ungrateful for the sacrifices made for them to sit on this website and cry about everything.
Chris Kyle is a hero. Suck on that.
